I’m looking to buy a laptop for my kids (4 & 7). I don’t want to spend a lot of money (maybe £200 ish) as they don’t need anything powerful and they’re likely to be rough with it. I have been looking at a LENOVO IdeaPad Slim 1 11.6" but there appears to be some concern about linux compatibility with the Ryzen CPU. So then I thought about maybe buying a cheap Chromebook and installing Linux on that. I know you can run Gallium OS on most Chromebooks but I’d prefer to run Fedora if I can. Then I wondered whether I should just buy a decent laptop 2nd hand off Ebay…
So I thought I’d ask for some recommendations. I really don’t want to pay £200 for something and then find out that Fedora will run fine but do weird stuff when I close the lid.
